Susan Beech

Paper Flower Artist - A Petal Unfolds

Susan Beech is the paper flower artist behind A Petal Unfolds. She works from her home studio in Brighton and loves living in the vibrant city.

Originally trained in Fine Art and working mainly with photography, she felt a need to go back to making with her hands again in 2013 and after trying a few different crafts became hooked on making crepe paper flowers.

For the last year, crafting paper flowers has been Sue’s full time job. Her regular paper flower workshops are sought after all over the world. She also crafts flowers at events and makes flowers for corporate projects and displays. Clients have included Cath Kidston, publishers Dorling Kindersley and Design*Sponge.

Sue will be sharing the secrets of paper blooms at the Friday night West Elm party.

  • Do you need an afternoon off? A bit of time to chat to your creative contemporaries? And dim sum? US TOO!

Join us for a feast on 27th April. We’re having a get together, a chinwag, letting our hair down and basking in the the glow of great company. Once we’ve feasted, let’s head out for a bit of photo fun because we know one lunch won’t be long enough to get everything off our chests. 
We’re calling it the F*ck Brexit Lunch because we’re sick of the endless purgatory that hangs around like a fart in a lift. 
Spaces are limited, link it in profile, hope to see you there! #blogtacular

  • There have been a lot of posts about the press release from the CMA this week. Lots of them about ‘new’ influencer posting rules, some of them inaccurate or misleading. Have you heard something that worries you? We’re always happy to share knowledge and point you in the right direction so please ask if you need clarification. 
You know we’re big supporters of following the rules and clearly disclosing at the beginning of posts - it’s the only way to cement our reputation as an industry committed to transparency. But, as with all rules getting to grips with them isn’t always plain sailing. Our podcast episode 36 is a masterclass from the ASA themselves in how to keep your ads, gifts and products clear online. #blogtacular
